Old City, New Crowd: Austin Dandridge on Charleston's New Wave

Dec 04 2015

Austin Dandridge chose to settle in Charleston for the quality of life, but also for the city's receptivity to new, tech-based businesses. In 2012, he founded his digital creative agency, Cobble Hill, and the company has since become a driving force in the new entrepreneurial scene in Charleston. As a resident and a tastemaker at the center of contemporary Charleston, we spoke to Dandridge about what the city offers the young and creative. Read More

Hot Fuzz: Meet one of Charleston's Visionary Designers

With its slow-living vibe and thriving cultural scene, Charleston is the perfect creative space for young, lifestyle-driven brands and the visionaries behind them. Helen Rice founded Fuzzco, a digitally focused design and branding firm, with her husband Josh Nissenboim in 2005 on a single PC. The business quickly grew in tandem with Charleston's emerging entrepreneurial and creative scene. Helen talked to us about the new kind of southern living that the city offers, and gave us an idea of what it takes to make a passion a project. Read More

Hemetic Trading Co. is Vermont's Finest American Made

Nov 13 2015

Matt McGinnis and Jake Caggige were friends living in one of the nation's most picturesque, outdoorsy states, when they had a realization: American heritage clothing—a look inspired by the very environment in which the two designers thrive—was not, in fact, American in the truest sense. As in, the seemingly all-American flannel shirts, beanies, and backpacks favored by their peers were often made in factories overseas. Avid skiers and snowboarders, they felt that the land they loved should be authentically represented in the kit of its inhabitants, so they took matters and materials into their own hands. The result was the Hemetic Trading Co.. Established in Burlington in 2013, the brand champions quality, durability, comfort, and accessibility while staying style-conscious. Matt took time away from the sewing machine to tell us about their process, where it's taken them, and where they dream of going. Read More

Vermont's Shacksbury Cider rethinks your favorite fall drink

Nov 12 2015

Shacksbury Cider's David Dolginow moved to Vermont to bring the outdoors into his life. After settling in the verdant scapes of the Champlain Valley, Dolginow realized that the Green Mountain State offered more than adventure terrain and breathtaking panorama. His Vermont valley has, he believes, all the delicious potential to produce fine ciders that California's Napa had for wine. As autumn and apple season arrive in earnest, we spoke with David about those amber hues, subtle bubbles, and the secrets of the orchard. Read More

NOLA's Tippy Tippens Shares 4 Goods That Matter

Sep 28 2015

Designer Tippy Tippens was living in Brooklyn when news of the BP oil spill tragedy hit in 2010. Horrified at the disaster and determined to make a difference, she relocated to New Orleans to start her business Goods That Matter., a socially minded company that designs thoughtful products that give back to equally thoughtful causes. Issues she and her team have tackled so far? Wetland restoration, education, disaster relief, literacy, and of course, the oil spill clean up. Here, Tippy shares some of her whimsical products from bird-shaped soaps to linen rabbits and tells us why they matter. Read More

Molly Babineaux of Loomed Shares Her Favorite NOLA Makers

Sep 18 2015

Hit by a strong case of wanderlust and the need for “some adventure before growing up too much,” former high school teacher Molly Babineaux packed up her life in New Orleans and headed to Istanbul. For Molly and travel buddy (hubby) Paul, that meant letting go of planning and worrying. Instead, they waited to see what the universe sent their way. Que sera, sera. “We weren’t looking for new careers necessarily, but I had this feeling that something would materialize, she explains. Just months later, while shopping for gifts to send home, she found that something: Turkish towels. Read More
